A few more photos


Managed to squeeze in a visit to Signal Hill. I try to visit this spot, my favourite in St. John's, every time I get back. This is Cabot Tower.














St. John's Harbour and downtown from Signal Hill. Pretty, no?









Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America, also taken from atop Signal Hill. It's quite fun to visit here and to walk out to the point and think to yourself, "Of all the millions of people on this huge land mass right now, I'm the one closest to Europe".

It was a good trip. A success, I think. We managed to completely surprise my Dad and present him with a very expensive bottle of excellent Cuban rum which I hope he'll savour. Told him I loved him and got to hear it back, face to face. That alone was worth the trip.

"Told him I loved him and got to hear it back, face to face. That alone was worth the trip."

Worth a trip to Mars and back.

Beautiful photos of a beautiful view on a beautiful day... but I seem to remember a moody image of Cabot Tower in the fog and rain that was evocative in another way -- was that one of yours?

Yes, Sherwood, that was from a trip last September. Good catch!
